Broker Highlight: Russell Tanner

» Posted by on Feb 6, 2017 in Blog | Comments Off on Broker Highlight: Russell Tanner

Since his days in the pits, Russell Tanner has either traded or worked on all three major floors in Chicago. He began as a runner on the floor of the Chicago Board Options Exchange (CBOE) in 1982. This opportunity was truly unique, as the CBOE traded options as a primary. (Most floors trade futures with options as a sideline.) This allowed Russell to gain an understanding of the puts and calls at a time when they were virtually unheard of outside of the industry.

As trading floors began to face extinction, Russell moved into an office. It was there that he acquired his Series 3 license in 2003 with a wealth of knowledge already under his belt.

Russell’s primary focus is to work with clients in a way that will benefit them the most. Whether through devising a strategy to protect an existing portfolio or to diversify into futures as a component to a new portfolio. Each trade or position is meant to build on an existing base. He understands that the relationship between advisor and client is symbiotic, and each wants the other to succeed. His goal is to cultivate relationships which will withstand the test of time.

Russell Tanner lives in gorgeous downtown Chicago with his wife. He is an active member at his local gym and loves exploring all that the city has to offer, especially the symphony and great restaurants. Russell’s idea of paradise is to sit on the lakefront on a nice day with a fresh mug of coffee and a cigar.
